The following are some musings from the lake, before we start our fall blogging schedule. Enjoy! Continue reading “Goodbye Summer”
I have told this story before but I wanted to keep you up to date on what we are doing with our Presentation and Coaching business. We set a target date of April 1st to get our coaching guide into edit and guess what it’s there! We are excited knowing that it will help a lot of people figure out this retirement thing having been through the ringer ourselves but it will require a lot of polishing before it’s ready to release to our coaching clients. This will be our last book on the subject and will serve as the foundation for our coaching business so we want to take our time and do it right. After that is done we will add a couple of chapters to the guide and publish it as a DIY coaching guide hopefully by the end of this year. Continue reading “Celebrating Another Milestone”

It’s fun now because Jonathan and I finally get to enjoy the fruits of our labours. The book has been written, the Victory Lap Retirement (VLR) website and blog has come to life and we received our first book order yesterday. But there is much work to be done to accomplish our goal of building the VLR tribe and helping as many people as possible start their own version of a VLR lifestyle. Great things take time but the results are well worth it once you get there!
